Anyhow, I'm back in Barbados! Sadly with a cold/flu... seriously this trip was quite something huh? we had a fairly good time, shopped until my shoulders, legs, back just about everything ached. I got to meet up with Blackman one day and we explored Manhattan, I'll have a separate post on that coming up. I got a to pick up a few make up items, but nothing to shout about. I didn't get to find everything that I wanted, and I really was being frugal when I bought make up, just so I could buy more clothes haha. Typically I don't buy clothes here in Barbados because it's a lot of stores selling the same clothes and I like unique pieces that don't cost a fortune.

Times Square is quite interesting, I passed in the car the first night I was there and wondered if there was a concert going on or something, since so many people were on the street. But I learnt that it's always like that especially after passing through there two other times. At night, it's still bustling with people and even when it's rainy, people with fun bubble umbrellas or boring black ones like mine are hustling to and fro. It's really funny for me, because Bajans hardly like going anywhere when it's rainy, unless they're driving.
I really enjoyed seeing the huge billboards with the brand names, actors, models and just hilarious advertisements you're accustomed to on cable television or magazines. I think that was a beautiful thing. I'm a real sucker for ads haha.
